The Salvation Army and the Dallas Cowboys have announced that Kenny Chesney will rock the Cowboys Stadium on Thanksgiving Day to kick-off The Salvation Army’s 122nd annual Red Kettle Campaign.
Chesney’s performance will be televised live nationally on FOX during halftime of the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 22) game against the Washington Redskins at 3:15 PM/CT. The concert marks the 16th year of the Thanksgiving Day partnership between the Dallas Cowboys and The Salvation Army, during which time the Red Kettle Campaign has raised more than $1.5 billion.
“There are great traditions in America — especially Thanksgiving, family and football. For 16 years the Dallas Cowboys and The Salvation Army have been an American tradition and I’m happy to be a part of it,” said Chesney. “I’m calling on all of my fans to not only give back this year but also send in their best football highlights videos for a chance to see me live in Dallas on Thanksgiving Day.”
Also, now through Nov. 11, fans of the Cowboys and Chesney can visit www.SalvationArmyUSA.org/BoysofFall for a chance to win a trip for four to Dallas to see the Thanksgiving Day game, including on-field passes for the halftime show performance and a meet-and-greet with Chesney.
